FDA Advises Against It

1 HCG Pregnancy Hormone Used As Weight Loss Drug

The latest fad in the battle against fat is the pregnancy hormone, hCG, in combination with a 500 calorie a day diet. hCG, which is derived from the urine of pregnant women, needs to be injected daily. Patients pay about $1000/month for a doctor’s consultation, syringes and a supply of the hormone, which promises that they’ll increase muscle mass and metabolize fat in hard-to-lose places like upper arms, abdomen and thighs without feeling hungry. While hCG, which is used to treat fertility, is legal for “off-label” use, the FDA warns that it does not effect weight loss and may cause depression, headaches and blood clots. hCG was first touted as a weight loss drug in the 1950s. In 2009, baseball star Manny Ramirez was suspended for using Major League Baseball-banned hCG.

Cleaning Coal-Fired Power Plants

3 EPA Toxic Cleanup Proposal Deadline Looms

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is facing a deadline of March 16 to propose cleanup for toxic pollution from coal-fired power plants. According to the American Lung Association, coal-burning power plants must be cleaned up urgently to protect public health. Those most in danger are the young from infants through teenagers, seniors, pregnant women, and those with asthma, lung diseases, heart disease and diabetes. In their report, "Toxic Air: The Case for Cleaning Up Coal-fired Power Plants," the group describes the mix of toxic air pollutants that come from the plants. In the Toxic Air report, the American Lung Association also details the technologies available to cut emissions from coal-burning plants. They're urging citizens to demand action from President Obama.

Dead Fish Surfacing

4 Millions of Dead Anchovies on Redondo Beach

"Two weeks ago out here in Huntington Beach, we had hundreds of purple starfish and mussels washed ashore at 17th Street and PCH. [...] Times are feeling strange."
- Joyce Silvestre in the comments

It could soon be a smelly situation in California if millions of dead anchovies are allowed to hang out on Redondo Beach. CNN reports that millions of anchovies, "enough to top much of the world's pizza," are covering the bottom of the sea in the harbor. The dead fish, measuring around 6 inches each, started rising to the surface this morning, reported the Daily Breeze in Torrance, Calif. The paper says that Sgt. Phil Keenan of the Redondo Beach Police commented that the anchovies could "create a terrible pollution and public health issue" if allowed to linger. The reason for the mass death of anchovies has not yet been determined, but officials think that the fish died from oxygen deprivation. The paper reported that there were no red tides present that may have contributed to the deaths.

Another Top Health Honor

5 Southeast is Diabetes Belt

The southeastern U.S. has another unhealthy title: "diabetes belt," reveals new research from the CDC. Already known as the "stroke belt," the Southeast is now marked as the area with the greatest need for control and prevention of diabetes. MSNBC reports that the CDC used county-by-county data to identify areas of people most at risk for diabetes. The CDC says that parts of the following states show a clear trend of high diabetes: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, plus all of Mississippi. Almost 12 percent of people in the diabetes belt had diabetes, compared with 8.5 percent of the rest of the U.S. The research was published in American Journal of Preventative Medicine.

Chocolate Fix May Hurt

6 Ivory Coast Conflict Could Affect Chocolate Prices

The former president of the Ivory Coast, Laurent Gbagbo, has refused to step down, and the U.S. may feel the impact in the form of higher prices for chocolate, reports CBS News. While the Middle East has dominated news coverage, the bloody Ivory Coast conflict that could turn to civil war may soon garner more attention. The Ivory Coast produces 40 percent of the world's cocoa, but the international community has banned their product. Since cocoa is the main ingredient used to make chocolate, the world can't be sure how much prices will rise until the conflict is settled.

Mysterious Empty Shelves

7 Consumers Angry over Missing Pepcid Complete

Some consumers are upset over Johnson & Johnson Merck Consumer Pharmaceuticals' lack of clear communication about the disappearance of Pepcid Complete, reports Los Angeles Times. The product has been difficult to find since last fall, and the company's website directs visitors looking for it to Pepcid AC. Some frustrated sufferers of heartburn have turned to buying Pepcid Complete on eBay. A spokeswoman for the product told Los Angeles Times that they're evaluating "processes and making improvements at all the plants" that make OTC products. As a result of the evaluations, products like Pepcid Complete may "occasionally become temporarily unavailable." The company has said that the disappearance isn't connected with any recalls, and the product should be available this month.

Lower Blood Sugar Rate

8 Mediterranean Diet Has Many Health Benefits

The Mediterranean diet can have positive global effects on individual risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, find researchers. The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, showed that the Mediterranean diet can help turn around high blood pressure, high blood sugar rate, low HDL "good" cholesterol and high triglycerides. The diet may also lower unhealthy waist size, over 35 for women and 40 for men. Researchers evaluated the diet's effect on metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors for diabetes and heart disease. They found that the diet also reduces the individual risk factors, such as low HDL. The research involved more than half a million people from 50 previous studies conducted on the Mediterranean diet in several countries, including the U.S.

Stick It to Menopause

9 Acupuncture Eases Symptoms Due to Menopause

Fifty-three postmenopausal women were split into two groups, one receiving traditional acupuncture and the other group got sham treatments for 10 weeks. Those who received acupuncture experienced less severe hot flashes and mood swings compared to women who got the sham treatment but did not decrease the rates of other problems. The acupuncture was independent of the changes in hormone levels that lead to menopause and the symptoms women experience. Researchers believe that acupuncture should be offered to women who are unable or unwilling to use hormone replacement therapy. The complete study can be found online at Acupuncture in Medicine.

Repaired Urethra Works Long Term

10 Bladder Cells Repair Severe Urethral Injuries

By taking a small piece of bladder tissue and creating tube-like structures with the cells from boys aged 10 to 14 with a rare urethral injury so bad that they could not urinate without a catheter, researchers were able to repair the tube that connects the bladder to the outside of the body via the genitals. Groin injuries from car accidents and falls usually cause this type of injury. Normally doctors use skin to make the repair but it is usually unsuccessful. The boys who received this new treatment have done well for six years but it is unknown if it will work in adults. It is still very difficult to engineer body parts from cells but researchers are happy with the outcomes and say the study shows that "tissues can be engineered using the patients' own cells, and they last long term."

Detecting Sweetness

11 More Sweet Detectors in Taste Cells Discovered

Researchers who studied taste cells found a receptor called T1r2+T1r3 a viewed it as the primary sweet detector. It could detect both natural and artificial sugars but they did not think it accounted for detecting all sweets. So they took another look at taste cells in the intestine and pancreas and found that T1r2+T1r3 resided in the same taste cells with other unknown sugar sensors. SGLT1 triggers a sweet taste when a pinch of salt is ingested and KATP is believed to act in a manner that prevents us from consuming too much sweet food by inhibiting the sensitivity of the taste cells. Researchers have concluded that sweet taste cells are complex and believe the results of this study will help us to find techniques to help people stop overeating sweets.

Gambling on Sleep or Lack of It

12 Sleep Deprivation Increases Positive Thinking

Researchers at Duke University and in Singapore found that when people do not get enough sleep, they put more weight on the positive consequences of their actions as opposed to the negative ones, which can lead to decisions such as risky gambling. Twenty-nine people with an average age of 22 were asked to make several decisions that focused on economics after a night of normal sleep and then after a night where they did not get enough sleep. MRI scans actually showed that the part of the brain associated with processing positive outcomes was more active than the part involved in negative outcomes of those who were sleep deprived compared to those who got enough rest. The things we do to stay awake, such as drinking coffee or getting fresh air, do not help, according to the study.

Decreases Inflammation

13 HDL May Protect Against Bowel Cancer

A study of 1200 people with bowel or rectal cancer compared to 1200 healthy individuals showed that those with higher levels of HDL and one of its components, apoliprotein A (apoA) are at a decreased risk of developing bowel cancer but not rectal cancer. After other factors were taken into account, it was determined that an increase of 16.6 milligrams/deciliter (mg/dL) in HDL reduced the chance of bowel cancer by 22 percent and a 32 mg/dL increase in apoA lowered it by 18 percent. High HDL levels increase anti-inflammatory proteins while low HDL levels increase pro-inflammatory proteins which contribute to carcinogenesis by increasing cell growth and proliferation and inhibiting cell death. The link between HDL and the risk of bowel cancer was independent of other cancer-promoting factors.

Activates Body’s Immune System

14 Alzheimer’s and Stroke Vaccine Developed

Researchers in Israel have developed a vaccine that fights Alzheimer’s and stroke by activating the body’s macrophages which clean up the amyloid proteins that build up in the blood vessels of the brain. Given nasally, it is safe and works in animal models of vascular damage whose behavior went back to normal after being vaccinated. Damage that was already present was cleared by vaccination and it stopped more damage. Based on results in animals, researchers believe that human clinical trials could include people at risk for these diseases, those with early symptoms and those with vascular damage from a prior stroke and are hopeful this may lead to a cure for the vascular dementia that occurs in the majority of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s.

Yes to Exercise, No to Pot

15 Exercise Lowers Need for Marijuana

A small study of 12 people who were considered “cannabis-dependent” and not interested in quitting cut down on smoking pot by 50 percent after using the treadmill for 30 minutes for two weeks. They were also shown pictures of marijuana before and after exercising and ranked their cravings on a scale and reported that their used drops from an average of 5.9 to 2.8 joints daily. The 50 percent reduction in use was observed half-way through the study. Researchers are very excited about this because there is no medical treatment for marijuana addiction. The findings need to be repeated on a larger scale but they have gotten a glimpse into how exercise may affect addiction. Abuse and complications linked to pot use has increased over the last ten years in people of all ages.
